    For Japan, you can try here: http://www.pricejapan.com/front/e_main_page.php

    Don't think they have a very big catalog though.

    Can try here too: http://kakaku.com/camera/, but you have to be able to navigate in Japanese.

    I checked out street prices in Bangkok before about a year ago, it's not too impressive.
    I think you will have better luck with Hong Kong.

    Do you have the name of the shop which gave that price? Thanks.

    Does anyone else have a shop to recommend, like the equivalent of our MS Color, where can go in and get a good price? I am thinking of asking someone to help me buy a K20D with the 18-55 AL II kit lens from HK. But the person is clueless about DSLRs. So it would be good if I can point the person to a honest shop that gives a good price (and international warranty of course).

    Cathay like
    Man shing 永成 / Wan shing 萬成 near Mong Kok MTR

    MsColor like with large pentax catalog
    Foto 風度 in Hong Hum, not easy to find

    AP like in SLS like place
    DC Fever, Simcity, Mong Kok, along Nathan Rd

    Big chains
    Citicall 鐳射, Fortress, everywhere
    I saw the Gx-20 kit in one of the citicalls for 6900+. Quite reasonable.

    TCW like
    Tin Cheung / Zhao Xiang Guan in TST.

    My suggestion is if ur fren is not familiar with HK, go for the Mong Kok area shops. Give him the price u get from the pentax google spreadsheet and tell him get ard that price. Exact locations get in Ygdragon. Always request for official hong kong stock bcos Pentax got international warranty.

    Thanks for the info, will pass it on to my friend. Amazon's price is now about S$1590. Hoping that the HK price can better that by at least 10%.

    I heard the K20D in Hong Kong is reasonable cheap now.

    Someone said that they bought it at HKD 6280, around 1150 SGD!

    Normally cheaper in Malaysia cos no GST there.

    It seems that most of the shops cut the price after the release of GX20.

    萬成 or 永成 or boardway should be similar price.

    Check this out

    http://www.qk123.com/content/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=198entax-k20d-6990&catid=34:2008-08-11-13-49-12&Itemid=59

    Official Retail prices is HKD 6990 Body only. Finally it is replacing K10D and not position at above K10D. Grey sets will sell at even lower.

    Thanks for the link.

    So in HK, the suggested retail price is:
    - HK$6990 (S$1288) K20D body only
    - HK$7490 (S$1380) K20D with 18-55 ALII kit lens

    If street price for body only is HK$6280 (S$1157), that's about a 10% discount off the official price.

    From the postings on the price threads recently, I'm gonna wait a bit and see. The local shops might well be able to match the HK prices. Wooohooo!
